Despite what has been a largely divisive critical reception, Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation has garnered a big audience of fantasy fans after its first season — which has now been and gone in a flash. For that reason, we’re already looking ahead to season two and who might play the role of Vesemir.
It should come as no surprise that Mark Hamill is the first actor on our list, given that he’s already declared himself a good fit for the role!
If you aren’t up to speed, Hamill was tagged by a fan on Twitter back in 2018 as a potential candidate for the role of Vesemir, to which he replied explaining that although he had no idea who or what The Witcher and Vesemir was, he agreed he was a good fit.
Of course, Hamill is no stranger to nerd culture and the fantasy genre, having played Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, and most recently The Scientist in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
Certainly, his acting credentials and experience aren’t in question, and we also think his look is a perfect fit.
